SUMMIT, NJ - The Christ Child Society of Summit (CCS) will host its 10th Annual Baby Shower on April 7 at St. Teresa of Avila Church's Memorial Hall. The event is expected to attract more than 100 guests, each of whom it is anticipated will donate a new layette item, such as outfits, pajamas, receiving blankets, onesies in newborn and 3-month sizes. In lieu of one of these items, guests may also provide a monetary donation of $40.

The Christ Child Society of Summit provides bundles of essential clothing, or layettes, to babies at Overlook and Morristown Medical Center's free pediatric clinics. Since their first baby shower in 2007, CCS has touched well over 1,400 babies in the community by providing them with essential clothing.

In addition, through the efforts of the “Knitting Angels,” a hand-knit or sewn item completes each package. The layette bundles help babies and their families with limited resources get off to a happy and healthy start, with every CCS chapter in the country providing layettes to needy newborns in their area. The layettes are the signature and founding project of the National Christ Child Society.

Baby Shower Co-Chairs Sheila Schlageter and Julie Vlass will welcome guests at a Mass at 11:30 a.m., followed by a catered lunch.

The CCS' Co-President, Kathryn Colao, said, “I love how each year our baby shower brings together our members and friends in the community to celebrate the advent of spring and to support the Christ Child layette program.  The adorable baby clothes and donations we receive make our layettes extra special and help us serve local families in need in a meaningful way.”

To RSVP for the event, or for further information, visit christchildsummit.org.

St. Teresa of Avila Church's Memorial Hall is located 306 Morris Avenue.

Is FAANG Long in the Tooth?

Investors love to rally around a stock story. Today it’s all about the FAANG stocks. Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG) are a major reason why the S&P 500 rallied so much in 2017. Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
